7 Layer Taco Dip and Party food!

My youngest turned 12 on Valentine’s Day.

We had already passed out party invitations for Saturday, when I found out my mom would be having emergency surgery on her broken hip on Saturday morning.

Mom came through the surgery just fine!  We are so thankful.

I spent my morning at the hospital with her and around lunch quickly ran home and started getting the party food together.

I had already planned the menu along with Brooklyn and we had everything ready to go.  My hubby made the Tuna Sandwiches while I was at the hospital and Brooklyn made the Ham Rolls the night before.

Everything turned out to be delicious!

Our Menu:

Cocktail Weiners

7 Layer Mexican Dip and chips

Tuna Sandwiches

Ham Pecan Pinwheels (recipe here)

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries (these were yummy!)

Skillet Cake with pourable Chocolate Icing (cake recipe here)

…oOo…

So on to the 7 Layer Mexican Dip recipe!

This is my first time making it and believe me, I will make it again!

.

Spread the combined sour cream and cream cheese over the bean layer.

.

 

Spread the combined salsa or picante sauce ove the cream cheese/sour cream layer.

.

Finally, top with shredded cheese and chopped green onions.  Grab some chips and dig in!
